on youtube

philtyrich1 says:

Whats good Fam,
I pretty much got down how to chop now on the eps claasic had to watched your vid than read a note dude left him in the comment section in regards to chopping on the eps and using the set keyboard range. wanted to ask when i press edit than wav button and go into sample start screen do i have to set the farthest right (0) to six than left set the left arrow to the middle of the screen an adjust my sample start cause i notice much of a difference it doesn’t let me really let me edit the front of the sample.

Imnevergonnapostvids says:

Very thorough review man. Big L is my favorite rapper of all time and Lifestylez is my 4th favorite hip hop album ever. You probably know about this, but Lord Finesse broke down every track on HiphopDx, and it is really interesting to see what Big L was about by someone who knew hip so well. The demo tracks that were on this album were: ‘M.Cs what going on,’ which was ‘I can’t understand it,’ ‘Give it to em L,’ which is ‘Let em have it L,’ and No Endz no Skinz is rehashed from a demo version. I think there might be more, but those are the only ones I know of. Definitely check those tracks out if you haven’t. Once again, thanks for reviewing one of my favorite hip hop albums and very thorough review.
